      Anyone wants a loaner of SGD1 and Modius? I think I'll get Bifrost 2 to replace Modius after all, but now I have extra DACs lying around.

      Whoa... Godzilla vs Kong is actually a decent movie with a coherent plot and good cinematography. How did this happen?

        But I thought Batman vs. Superman was underrated, so I'm probably will be with you on this...

        Well, I guess I'm chiming with this one because the majority of the movie was giant monsters fighting. And that's what it should be! Nobody watches these movies for Monarch or whatever the hell.

        And it seems audience score of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes kinda agrees with me. Batman v Superman was... decent but it could have shown more Batman fighting Superman, with the same level of mayhem as Man of Steel. Godzilla vs Kong is basically what I wanted Batman v Superman to be.

      Airpods Max = U-shaped sounding, very dull upper mids. Tweak headphone accommodations and it sounds more balanced, but still kinda W-shaped.

        Yeah. I think... granted, Apple did try pretty hard, but this is still basically a grown-up Airpods Pro rather than a truly balanced, audiophile-worthy headphone.

        Also makes me wonder why they didn't go with 50mm biocellulose drivers.

        The Airpods Pro Max will come out just before the Cash Pro Lapse when money leaves several people's wallets suddenly.

      Plugged in GO2A SE, which has been dead for a while, and somehow, it came back on like it never died. No issue. Weird.

        I have a GO2A std that has been on at my desk at work every day for years now, and often on overnight too. No issues. I also have a SE that does less strenuous duty but did serve for many months as my primary device for monitors, also no issues. Maybe because they don't move around much so no impacts?

        Yeah, maybe I'm just so happy to finally have a decent sounding DAC that only needs to have a single USB cable plugged in to operate (RCA non-withstanding). Reduces cluster on my desk. Not like I don't already have 10-20 other cables running all around... Plus my outlet is happier, too. Win win.

        Listening to new music beats listening to new gear like listening to music beats listening to gear in general, are you still searching or are you just enjoying, this ties in well with what @zerodeefex wrote
